  • Mavericks' Wesley Matthews: Exercises player option
    By RotoWire Staff

    Matthews has exercised the $18.6 million player option on his contract for the 2018-19 season, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. Matthews' decision means he will return to Dallas for a fourth season. His scoring average dipped to 12.7 ppg during the 2017-18 season, but he did shoot over 40 percent for the first time during the 2014-15 season when he played for Portland. Matthews has started every game he has appeared in for the Mavericks, and he figures to remain in that role for another year. He will have plenty to play for with him set to become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2019.

  • Matthews (leg) has been cleared to resume regular basketball activities without any restrictions, Dwain Price of Mavs.com reports. Matthews missed the final 16 games of the 2017-18 campaign after being diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right leg. After nearly a month off for rehabilitation, it appears as though Matthews is progressing as expected and he should be 100 percent healthy prior to training camp. In addition to the update on his health, Matthews also hinted that he would pick up his $18.6 million player option for next season, which isn't a huge surprise considering he'd struggle to find that sort of money elsewhere. If all goes as expected, look for Matthews to slot into the starting lineup once again to open 2018-19.

  • Matthews has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right leg and will likely miss the remainder of the season, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. Matthews had already been ruled out for the team's upcoming four-game road trip, but additional testing on his leg Monday revealed a stress fracture which should keep the veteran guard out for the rest of the 2017-18 campaign. Official confirmation on that timetable will likely be provided over the next few days, but Matthews has likely finished his season playing in 63 games, while averaging 12.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.2 steals across 33.8 minutes. Matthews' absence should mean more minutes for Yogi Ferrell and J.J. Barea in the backcourt alongside rookie Dennis Smith.

  • Matthews (leg) won't join the Mavericks for their four-game road trip that begins Tuesday in New York, Dwain Price of the Mavericks' official site reports. Matthews was a late scratch from Sunday's loss to the Rockets due to a leg injury and will have an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the injury. With the Mavericks out of the playoff race, there's no need for Matthews to risk further injury to his leg. Look for Yogi Ferrell, J.J. Barea and Doug McDermott to all potentially see upticks in minutes over the next week with Matthews sidelined.

  • Matthews has been scratched from Sunday's lineup against the Rockets due to a right leg injury, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports. Matthews is coming off a 25-minute outing against the Grizzlies on Saturday, so it remains unseen when he suffered the lower leg injury. Regardless, look for Yogi Ferrell and J.J. Barea to see expanded minutes Sunday night. Matthews next opportunity to take the court will come Tuesday against the Knicks.
